So this week I have been craving a bit of dirty, fatty, pub-grub style food and I stumbled across buffalo cauliflower while watching a fitness blogger on YouTube. I love hot sauce and I tolerate vegetables so this sounded ace.
For the sake of my macros, I changed the recipe slightly. Mainly by removing the block of butter called for in the original recipe. So this is pretty basic.
Recipe: Buffalo Cauliflower
- An average cauliflower (400g)
- Frank’s Red-Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
- Cut up the head of the cauliflower into mouth size of double bite sized pieces
- Boil until al dente
- Drain and place in a bowl
- Add half a bottle of franks hot wing buffalo sauce
- Mix (use spoons; it will be hot)
- Place on baking tray and bake for 10 mins at 180 degrees
I ate these bites with chicken for a week. I usually had to add more Frank’s sauce; I’m not sure if this is a sign that I have a problem, or that the cauliflower bites were seriously lacking in flavour. I suggest you actually make them and try yourself and adjust the spice.
They were quick and easy to do, taking around 2o minutes to prep and cook while I made a tonne of other stuff in the oven at the same time. I generally like baking vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower as I do think it adds more flavour, so these were on par with that.
If I were to change the recipe around at all, I would likely add cracked pepper and maybe a touch of smoked paprika. Then I would bake them until the edges charred slightly, giving a more BBQ effect to the bites.
No way do these replace chicken wings, but are a wonderful way to jazz up some veg for the week. They meal-prepped very well and I ate these for about 4 days.
